“Worst Hotel Of My Life”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

This hotel is the ABSOLUTE WORST hotel in all of Myrtle Beach, The place is nasty, it smells dingy. Also is located directly NEXT to a boarded up fenced off ABANDONED hotel. The ceilings were leaking, after the Air Conditioning unit was leaking water all over the floor upon arrival to the room. had to wait 1 hour for the hotel manager to "wake up" when attempting to get another room

Coffee Maker... Of course no coffee.. Horrible experience

In closing I believe this place should be condemned like its sister motel left of the main entrance

Room Tip: Don't bother... Go somewhere else.. Run away quickly

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

After reading reviews I didnt know what to expect, while the rooms were older they were clean and everything worked as it should. The man at the front desk was great and I was able to check in at noon. If your looking for a 5 star resort pay more but if you just want a room on the beach with a kitchen this is a great choice

I advise anyone planning to stay here to reconsider quickly this is the worst hotel ever...I dont think there is even enough room HERE to give you all the faults within this DUMP..to begin off with my stay here was on July 27th 2012 and I have never been so humiliated in my life.I booked this for my church group and none of us slept the entire night we were so disqusted frightened. The beds were dirty, the rags, washclothes and linen were filthy brown luckily we brought our own the elevator buttons were missing we had to take the stairs the mildew and spoiled clothes smell hit you before you even get to the office and your room some guest had bugs in their bed.. basically these are the most unclean and unsanitized rooms I have ever seen or been to the carpet looks and smells as if all the dogs have urinated and made fecies everywhere The pictures of this hotel are misleading bet yetter false advertisment this hotel should be shut down by the board of health the staff Glen and John are very rude, obnoxious,and inconsiderate they do not want to hear your complaints and could care less because they already taken your money and could care less about how you feel they will make you prepay (DON'T DO THIS) so you have no choice but to stay or lose your money whatever you do please be aware and look at your contract if you decide to stay in this dump they will put on your contract more days and nights than you requested and than charge you more money when you get there do not stay here or give them any money in advance because if you do than expect FILTHINESS..

We arrived at 3pm to a door that should have been unlocked it wasnt unlocked until 3:45. Now here are all the minor things wrong with this room in the words of smith rental properties mgr. JOHN.1.no curtin on bedroom window 2.duc tape holding brokrn blind together 3.caulking holding up falling wallpaper 4.rip in carpet 5.crack in bath tub 6.rip in shower curtain that hadnt been fixed when we left early on friday we called about it on sunday and tuesday 7.towel rod fell from wall 8.vent return in kitchen covered in dust 9.vent in bathroom was hanging down and covered in dust 10.dirty room , the lady who unlocked door said ouner had been there and was told not to clean the room that they would clean it 11.old worn out beds 12.tub clogged up 13. old tv's vic and sound went in and out 14.filthy dressers 15.couch and chairs look as if they had never been cleaned 16.side of fridge was dirty 17.picture taht was supposed to be on wall was on the floor behind night stand 18.one lamp beside bed had a shade the other was M.I.A 19.hile in wall behind bedroom door 20....We called SMITH RENTAL PROP on FRIDAY the 20th asked to speak with owner , NO CAN DO. So we spoke with a very unprofessional manager JOHN, that told us ''IF YOU HAD HIGHER EXPECTATIONS MAYBE YOU SHOULD UP YOUR STANDARDS NEXT TIME.'' we never asked for a refund all that we wanted was a new shower curtain they couldnt even do that. called sunday for repairs no show on monday , called back on tuesday no show on wednesday .we were tired of it and packed on thursday night and left friday around noon as we were brushing our teeth in the old worn out sink it leaked all in the bathroom floor . we spent over $15 in washing towles to keep the bathroom floor dry. the manager said we never called them , WE HAVE PHONE RECORDS, we had to talk to somebody a lady showed up 45 min late to unlock our door. we also took pictures of this place . the room was #313. and Mr. Knowledge said that all of this was minor. and this shouldnt be posted WELL HERE IT IS YOU DECIDE. he said that he was going to get on here explaining all of this, IT SHOULD BE GREAT. this has nothing to do with JONATHAN HARBOUR alot of the room that i seen had new carpet,hardwood floors, flat screens and a maid service. the a/c did work that was a plus. i will post photos at a later time.

Room Tip: only rent from jonathan harbour

Me and my family stayed here July 7th 2012 and it wasnt worth the cost. Soon as my niece entered the room (106 non smoking) the bed rail which was sticking off the bed cut her leg. we went too the front office and told the manager on duty what happen he said that she should have been more careful...and they didnt even have a first aid and saftey kit. The manager which looked like he was sprung out on drugs had a bad attitude and looked like he didnt wanna be there at all.They didnt even wanna give us extra towels and wash cloths. the only good thing this hotel has going for them is the flat screen tvs, the bed felt like it had stones in the matress,everyone backs were killing them. This place is a true piece of crap i will never return here even if it was free....

On July 6-8 me and a few friends stayed here at this hotel. First we called them ahead to let them know we were running late to check in, twice we called and we arrived we were greeted with a note on the front office door with my name on it saying call security, who was out on duty to let me in the hotel but, the security guy was on the lobby couch sleep. he open the door asked us why were we so late then gave us our keys, didnt ask for any identification, didnt show us which way the rm was. We found our room and there were spots ont he sheets and bed spread, there was a used shower cap in the bath tub with a wet was cloth hung on the shower curtain, the floors was dirty, the kitchen was horrible, the pull out sofa had a mattress on it that felt like we were laying on metal, the pillows had spots on them. We had to find the linen room to get more pillows and pillow cases along with sheets get cleaning supplies and clean the room ourselves. We asked house keeping that morning for clean wash clothes and towels and she said that they didnt have any so we had to go and buy them. When we went to go compllain to the the manager we seen the assistant instead, which was very rude, there was no apology, he didnt come to see the room, didnt offer any other accomodations or anything else, he's only reply was check out, dnt complain to him, talk to whom ever i booked the hotel through let them write him a letter and he will refund our money. This was the worst hotel stay i've ever experinced, this hotel needs to be shut down, for anyone to spend $417.68 on a one night/2 day stay at this hotel shuold have been treated alot better than this. It was so bad we even reported it to the news people so that could check into and found out we wasnt the only one complaning. SHUT IT DOWN! SHUT IT DOWN!.

Room Tip: never stay at this hotel, bad,bad,bad!
